I've always been pretty ignorant of the stage setup over the years, aside from my basic knowledge that Jerry was usually on the left (from the crowd, looking at the stage) in the early years, then on the right in the later. All the subtle changes over the years thru TC, Pig+Keith, Keith, Brent, etc are well documented in pictures, but I've just generally never paid much attention to it.

I would love to see someone put together a series of pictures that shows the equipment/musician placement chronologically for every tour. That would probably take a good amount of work, otherwise I'd do it lol.

I remember getting to a DSO show early one night, I would always try and guess the era based on the placement of their gear, but this one time they had "Jerry, Bob, and Phil" all sortof facing each other just off center. Hard to explain, I wish I had a photo of the show handy (DSO as well as the Dead's show). I had absolutely no clue what they were going to do. Turned out to be Red Rocks 8/31/78.
